Automatically add assignee to watchers
- Alice opens the issue and assigns it to Bob.
- Bob needs information from Carol and reassigns the issue to her. Bob forgets to add himself to the watchers.
- Carol replies but forgets to assign the issue back to Bob. Bob is not the originator, the assignee, or a watcher, and is not notified.

I wanted to try your plugin on v0.8.1. I have copied the folder redmine_auto_watch in the vendor/plugins folder, ran rake db:migrate_plugins and restart my server.
I can see your plugin in the administration plugin list.
But, when I assign a issue to user1, it is not automatically added as a watcher.
So, your plugin does not work for me. Do you know if it comes from the redmine version used, or if I missed something ?

I just tried with 0.8.1 and it's still working.
test1 user should not be the author of your test issue (author always receive notifications), and check your
View watchers list rights.
And for info, rake db:migrate_plugins is not needed because i didn't make db modifications.

Do you think when a user not in the watchers list updates the issue, should him/her be added to the watchers list automatically?
Sometimes I when I gives feedback to an issue that I am not part of, I might forget to add the issue to my watch list. But I think most of the time the user would like to watch the issue by default if he joins the discussion.

When you create issues by sending an email to an address and then reading the email with rake redmine:email:receive_imap
the issue is created but the creator (email sender) it is not marked as watcher. Could the plugin be modified to support this feature? Is there any hook to handle when you create with receive_imap rake task?

Try it out: https://github.com/logical-and/redmine_auto_watch. Watchers added on issue update and issue create from: author, assignee, previous assignee if any.
I can confirm that the forked and enhanced version of this plugin which can be found at https://github.com/mephi-ut/redmine_auto_watch works very well for Redmine 3.3.1
